Duette® Pleated Blinds provide a degree of extra insulation thanks to their unique cellular honeycomb construction, available with translucent, opaque or full blackout fabrics.
The unique design of Duette® Blinds provide an alternative appearance and performance to standard Pleated Blinds.
Duette® Blinds are available with translucent, opaque and full blackout options, depending upon your needs. The fabrics filter the sun, rather than reflect it.
Because of its construction, Duette® very much lends itself to very large rectangular blinds. Shaped blinds are certainly possible, but irregular shapes require extra rails to fitted within the blinds because the fabric is quite soft and ‘springy’, which means that shaped blinds can normally not be motorised.
The main benefit of Duette® window blinds is that the cords are concealed within the fabric, so there are no visible holes. Side blinds can be tensioned and recess-fitted if there is enough space but, as this is not always possible in UPVC conservatories, Duette® window blinds are normally freehanging in front of the window handles; operated by a cordlock.
We only normally recommend Duette® Pleated Blinds in conservatories where the roof is not south facing, and where the roof is only made up of large rectangular panes with similar window glazing.
The exact type of glazing on the roof may also be an issue but, as there is no solar reflective coating Duette® won’t damage your glass. As the fabric works by mainly absorbing the heat, it is not always suited to extremely hot areas with high levels of UV transmission.
Other considerations are that, whilst standard opaque Duette® is washable, the cellular structure can trap insect debris, making it less practical in some conservatories.

The salesman was courteous and helpful, and the fitter arrived to measure for the blinds at the agreed time and similarly with the fitting.
It's the details that matter. Whether it's the way our blinds fit complex shapes or that we offer unique blinds for every pane.
We spend more on R&D than any other conservatory blind manufacturer. Every component we use is purpose designed.
Because we love what we do, and love our products. Because our staff work for us, and not for the commission.
No pressure sales, inflated prices or fake discounts - just honest, helpful advice.
